Bill Skarsgård was originally slated for a different role in John Wick 4

So who was Skarsgård supposed to play? According to director Chad Stahelski, the character isn’t even in the final film. “There was one I was thinking of, it was an older script with a character that we don’t have anymore, thinking, oh, he’ll just go for that one. It was a bit of an action role” , Stahelski told EW.

He added:

“My old partner Dave Leitch, he used Bill on Atomic Blonde and during that process, I got to meet him, and I really liked him, and I loved his work. Every time I [saw him in a film], I was just amazed at how he can transform his body and say so much with non-verbal play. I thought it was fascinating and fit our world. I called Bill, I said, ‘Hey, I’m doing another John Wick, maybe there is a role for you, if we send you the rough script, and see if there is something you like. I haven’t said a word about which role.”

It turned out that the role Skarsgård liked was the main villain of the film. As Stahelski says:

“He calls me back and he says, ‘I would love to play the Marquis.’ I’m like, “No, Bill, he’s the bad guy. You don’t want the bad guy.” He’s like, ‘No, no, that’s the fun role! That’s the delicious role!’ I’m like, ‘Oh, right now!'”

Luckily, Stahelski gave Skarsgård the role of Marquess, and the actor got to create one of John Wick’s most memorable villains in the process.
